Power BI Drillthrough

Ginger Grant explains how to create and use hierarchies in Power BI:

Finding where to create hierarchies is the hardest part of creating them in Power BI, especially if one has ever created hierarchies in Excel Power Pivot as they are not it the same place. Hierarchies are not in the Relationships data view, instead they are found in the Report view. Right clicking on the ellipse next to any field in a table displays a menu, and the second item on the menu is New hierarchy. Hierarchies can also be created by clicking and dragging a field on top of another field, which also will create a hierarchy. Once the hierarchy has been created, to add another field to the hierarchy, drag a new value on top of the value with the hierarchy icon. If the value added is not added to the location you want it, click on the ellipse next to the field named and move the field up or down as you wish.

Ginger also shows how to create drillthrough reports once you have hierarchies in place.
